Kris Deering, Robert Harris, and many other renowned experts have reported that this release is almost perfect. What more do you want.
I don't know what is wrong with people's displays to see some of the issues they are seeing.
I honestly hope I never click into this thread again. What a shame.
I'm happy that you're enjoying your copy, but the problem is not with other people's displays or eyes. The green tint is baked right into the RGB values, and the Photoshop color picker has shown that "pure white" - the purest white in the whole film, including the credits and fade to "white" - is actually a shade of pastel green. As you should know, color pickers indicate the actual numerical color present, and they are unaffected by people's eyes and displays. Uncalibrated displays might compensate for it, and the viewer's eyes might compensate for it (such as yours), but neither are guaranteed...and it is factually incorrect to blame the green tint on anyone else's display, since it is numerically baked into the film. If you don't believe the RGB values and prefer arguments from authority (Kris Deering, Robert Harris, etc.), note that as time goes on, more reviewers are recognizing the problem, e.g. http://blubrew.com/2011/06/16/the-fe...ended-edition/
. As for myself, I'll consider the issue corrected when the Photoshop color picker does, not when Kris Deering and Robert Harris do.
